Nebraska Life Magazine

No blogger who claims to write about how wonderful it is to live in Nebraska would be worth reading if they didn't mention Nebraska Life magazine once in a while.  This magazine is truly a Nebraska treasure.

The issue I'm currently reading is the May/June issue, which means that the July/August issue must be well under way.

My relationship with Nebraska Life goes back to the early days, when Seifer Farms free-range chickens was one of the first advertisers in the late 90's.  

Whether you've never left the state or are a Nebraska native living far from your roots, a subscription to this magazine will be just the thing to make you feel like you're back home again.

Of course there are great articles on interesting topics from across the state. The current magazine features stories from Hay Springs, Alliance, Keith County Gothenburg, Brewster, Lynch, Broken Bow, Burwell, Norfolk, Dixon County, Omaha, Plattsmouth, Palmyra, Lincoln and Grand Island. Whew! They really get around. The photography that accompanies the stories is always breath taking.

Buy the magazine for it's stories and pictures, but don't look past the advertising. You'll find out about the Powwow on June 19-21 at the Santee Sioux Nation Wacipi, the Fremont Dinner Train, the Nebraska Prairie Museum in Holdrege, Prairie Poet, Storyteller and Entertainer Marci Broyhill, the Museum of Nebraska Art in Kearney, the Wildwood Historic Home in Nebraska City... and that's all in the first 9 pages!

Roger Welsch pens a regular column, there are book reviews, recipies, a poetry selection, listings of Bed and Breakfast's, wineries, and of course, a calendar of events so you won't miss any of the fantastic celebrations that take place across the state.

Thanks for stopping by. I'll share my copy with you over coffee.
